A Silent Love

So I sit
tick, tick, tick
papers rustle
pages turn
prophets speak
'The wolf shall dwell with the lamb'
and in it is a hope
a hope for we who fight
a silent fight:
'They shall not hurt or destroy
in all my holy mountain.'
As you raise your sword
I offer my hand -
take it in yours
or cut it off
but, please,
be swift in your action.
'In that day the Lord will extend
his hand yet a second time to
recover the remnant which is left.'
I have only a
silent love to give.
